Happy Wednesday loves! Hope you have all had a great start to your week!
I had such a busy week last week with my oldest’s birthday party - I always feel like birthday weeks are so hectic especially when you have multiple kids! Our party was great other than the weather. Anyway, I’m looking forward to getting into a “summer routine” now that the kids are out of school and birthday prep is over with!
I absolutely LOVE summer, but it definitely means I have to change up my makeup routine! I hate being super sweaty & hot with a lot of makeup on -so I gravitate towards lighter coverage products that make me still look good, but aren’t heavy during those carefree, warm summer days.
I know I have posted on here about my favorite makeup when they’re on sale at Sephora…but lets be honest…You gotta open your wallet for Sephora AND some of them are full coverage (not so ideal for those hot summer days). ! Today I’m sharing my DRUGSTORE beauty/Make up go-tos which are friendly not only on your wallet, but are perfect for summer weather. For example, I’m not wearing any foundation in these pictures-only the L’Oreal BB Cream I speak of below! These all are tried & tested and honestly a lot of them I use on a daily basis.
My Beauty Drugstore Go-tos!
I’ve listed this product first for a reason- I use it every single day. Some days I wear this BB Cream under my foundation, and other days I only wear this. It takes away any redness and I haven’t found another product that works this well. It is SO perfect for summer (light coverage). Keep in mind the color of it is green but when you blend it, it melds to the color of your skin! I promise you will love this.
I know some of you are looking at this wondering why I have Vaseline on this list. BECAUSE THERE ISN’T ANYTHING VASELINE CANNOT DO. #TRUTH. My main love for vaseline firstly has to be as an eye makeup remover. I swear by it…it takes every single lick of eyeliner, mascara, etc, and I also feel using this on a nightly basis helps with anti-aging. It seriously hydrates your skin and you can also use it for chapped lips. I use it every night for makeup remover and hydration/anti-aging process!
This is a new product that I’ve started using and it is so amazing. The highlighter on this gives you such a glow and brightness, and I’ve used it every day! Amazing for summer.
The best drugstore eyeliner-lasts forever, easy to apply!
I use this setting powder over my concealer every day. Helps set my concealer and lasts all day, gives a brightness to that under eye area!
My fave drugstore mascara-just as good as any from sephora, Ulta, etc.
Carol’s Daughter has the best hair masks- I use them every week. Super hydrating, great for your hair, and smell great.
Wet Brushes are the best for post shower hair! I have them for myself and our boys!
These are my go-to favorite eyelashes from a drugstore (I also have my fave’s from Sephora but they are pricy!). Natural looking, pretty easy to apply!
I know some people swear by using the beauty blender brand for concealer & foundation, but honestly this brand at Target is great and I see no difference in my use vs using beauty blender! Also the marble design is so cute! 3 pack for $7-can’t beat it!
I know a lot of people who swear by T3s , but I love my hot tools curling iron! This is such a good curling iron for a really good price point.
Last but not least…for all my workout friends! I use epsom salts ALL OF THE TIME because #squats. This helps me recover & relax in the tub and I totally recommend these if you work out, bike, or run!
Hope you try some of these out! I swear by them!
